What A Veil Reveals

She will do up her hair
It will shimmer in a bonnet
Polish those cheeks, fair
She'll reread his dashing sonnet

She'll make herself beautiful
She'll aim to do her very best
To show that she is a prize, wonderful
To show she is out to impress

As a wife, she'll be dutiful
As a mother she'll be loyal
As a daughter she'll tread careful
As a sister she'll dazzle

Her mother's old dress will fit
A borrowed smile for her fears
Her husband's new ring, a finger lit
And a veil, blue to hide her tears

So the coolness, we appreciate
Raining on us through the night

We'll flaunt our short shorts
With an umbrella in hand
And we will tan of course
And enjoy both as much as we can
